Monday Mother's Day Musings

I dug way into the archives of 2005 for this picture.
It is one of the ones I hold "precious."
It was taken on my birthday which was also Easter that year.

I wrote this poem for this picture back then but it is still what I feel in my heart today,even though yes, the task is still daunting,and  disappointments are real,and parenting more challenging than I thought it could be,God is always good.


Dear Lord, when I consider,all the blessings big and small
I truly think my children are the greatest gift of all.
I pray I will not ever ,take this job as trite,
For I know I'm shaping warriors,to live for you with might.
I pray that you will give me,wisdom for the task.
I know your hand will guide them,when I feel life's much too vast.
So Lord,I feel so privileged ,that you chose them for me;
Help me never take for granted,these precious gifts from thee.

Mother's Day 2012.
